Research Assistance - Mobile Phones

20 January 2018

Keele University which is collating information on current activity relating to preventing mobile phone use by drivers is seeking assistance.

If you are involved with a project or product targeting driving mobile phone use, you may wish to support the team at Keele University which has received funding from the Road Safety Trust to compile information on the range of innovations and projects currently operating across the UK to tackle the issue of mobile phone use by drivers. The team has devised a short survey and would invite anyone involved in such a project to complete it. 

In return it will be offering to meet with project designers and innovators to share it academic insights into project design, evaluation, promotion etc. Your help is much appreciated.

You can also follow the project on the website.
